ANCIENT VVISDOM: New Video Now Playing At Revolver; Tour With Sólstafir Begins
Apr 23 2015
Today, Revolver Magazine offers up the video accompaniment to the track “We Are Damnation,” from occult death rock/folk metal dealers, ANCIENT VVISDOM. The infectious hymn comes by way of the band’s Sacrificial long player, released last year via Magic Bullet Records.
The haunting, silent-film-styled clip was captured by Edmonton-based illustrator, Richard Lukacs, and truly brings to life the inner demons of band leader, Nathan Opposition who offers, “An ancient cult delivered this to me as an offering to the end of the world. We call upon the forces of evil and release this plague unto you.”

The video premiere comes in conjunction with ANCIENT VVISDOM’s North American tour supporting atmospheric Icelandic metallers, Sólstafir. The ceremonies commence tomorrow, April 22nd, in Brooklyn and will blanket twenty-five cities, the journey coming to a close on May 20th in Richmond.

ANCIENT VVISDOM will be touting psalms from their Sacrificial full-length. Produced by founding vocalist Opposition, engineered by Travis Bonner at The Diamond Factory Studios in Austin and mastered by Paul Logus (Anthrax, Clutch, Hellyeah, Shadows Fall et al) at Taloowa Mastering, Sacrificial finds the collective at once melodic and catchy conjuring dark, penetrating neofolkian hymns of iniquity. Thematically, Sacrificial delves further into Opposition’s personal ascent into the unanticipated enlightenment of exploring humanity’s universal darkness. Whereas traditional lore dealing with the occult, paganism, and Satan himself tends to be heavy-handed (and often synonymous with a proverbial descent away from any sort of positive self-affirmation), Sacrificial spins a slant wherein “down” becomes “up.” In Opposition’s world, confronting one’s own demons and humanity’s primordial penchant toward chaos and destructive ritual will ultimately pass each seeker through a threshold unto which deeper knowledge, sage wisdom, and self-realization envelop one’s consciousness. ANCIENT VVISDOM’s Sacrificial is out now on Magic Bullet Records. Order yours today at THIS LOCATION.
